I am participating in the Diabetes365 project on Flickr. The group project is to “show the world how Diabetes is something that we work at and live with all year round.” I have not posted regularly despite the group rules but I intend to starting today. My first two entries are about meals and blood glucose.For breakfast I normally eat one serving of steel cut oats, a Pepperidge Farm whole wheat muffin with egg beaters and a MorningStar Farms sausage patty. The muffin is toasted and one serving of spreadable butter make this … oh so delicious.With that combo, 6 units of Novolog ( I take 24 units of Levemir in the morning as well ) puts my two hour BG in the 120 range with a dip into the 60 and 70s just before lunch. But sometimes, eating the same thing each and every day can get boring. In fact, it is quite boring. My wife noticed too. She brought home some Pepperidge Farm 100% Whole Wheat mini bagel and some Philadelphia Low Fat cream cheese. I substituted that for my usual muffin. The result can be seen below.When stuff like that happens I swing into “safe mode”. So for lunch I am having a Kash: Sweet and Sour Chicken. Safe because after eating this, my 2 hour and post BG is normally in the low 100s and 80s respectively.
